Secondary/IP/IB and Primary English
Mr Jeck has taught in several secondary schools and was involved in many schools’ IDPW and Fastrack projects. An art lover, Mr Jeck has also worked with several schools on projects with the National Arts Council and Singapore Symphony Orchestra, integrating the learning of languages with the art and music. Many liken him to the Renaissance man because of his diverse interests but he humbly believes that he can only strive to be one. For more than 15 years, one thing that Mr Jeck holds on unwaveringly is the belief that every student can improve and is always prepared to go the extra miles for his students.
English is easy if students adhere to Mr Jeck’s systematic approach to achieving distinction in the language. Most students hate his lessons during the initial years because he does not make things easy during the foundational years for the weaker and indolent students. Spelling, grammar practices and current affairs discussions are weekly affairs. The very stuff that the students detest become habitual and eventually many of them actually find something amiss when the weekly doses of vocabulary, grammar and “story telling” are temporary suspended in lieu of mock examinations.
The Knowledge Key Tuition centre becomes a centre for the dissemination of interesting current affairs and general knowledge for many lower secondary students that have yet to develop the habit of reading news and articles daily. Mr Jeck takes pride in broadening the perspectives of his students which is crucial in handling expository writing. His practical and simplistic approach to brainstorming has become the building blocks for many students who are clueless in forming their own views and ideas when tackling discursive and argumentative essays.
